Co-opted Governor – Art, DT, English link Governor. Literacy Standards.
My husband and I have lived in Toynton All Saints since 2004, when we moved up from London. I have been teaching since 1991 and have worked in various secondary schools in both South London and Lincolnshire. For many years I worked in special education, initially as a teacher and later as a SENDCO. For the last decade or so I have been teaching mainly English at KS3 and KS4. My knowledge of special needs and the secondary curriculum are useful, particularly with KS2 and KS3 transition.
Since I live in the village, I am able to attend most of the events that are held out of school hours and have enjoyed seeing all the excellent initiatives that the school has introduced even in the time I have been a Governor.
